...Pakistan represents one of the world's most troubling states on the brink of an economic

catastrophe. Record levels of unemployment, unprecedented inflation rates, ever increasing fiscal

deficit and looming energy crises; are just afew of the vices which have crippled my country at a

macro level. Having nearly averted a balance of payments crisis back in 2008, with help from the

International Monetary Fund, my country is once again headed on a path of self annihilation.

Despite being rich in natural resources and self sufficient in food production, Pakistan's

economic infrastructure is falling apart day by day. One is forced to ponder; but why? What

makes us fail where others have succeed, what makes us weak while other grow strong, but more

importantly, how do we make things right.

A childhood inquisition into finding an answer to these questions is what introduced me to the

world of economics. I want to pursue my masters in Economics. My MBA in the chosen subject

provided me with a well rounded coverage of the discipline. It helped in the development of an

open minded approach towards problem solving, and imparted the necessary training required to

analyze and develop solutions for a range of micro and macro economic problems through

courses such as Micro Economics, Macro Economics, Money and Banking, Financial Markets

and Institutions, Development Economics, Economy of Pakistan etc. With time, what first started

out as mere curiosity, slowly took the form of a passion: a desire to understand and to decode

and to learn how all the dots connect together to form a complete picture. Throughout my BBA

and MBA, I have worked upon several projects and assignments which involved presentations on

economy of developing countries such as Paraguay, writing articles/reports related to economic

affairs. Few of my articles that were published in leading newspapers during my graduation can

be found on following links:

My interest in learning economics can be seen from the fact that soon after my MBA I joined

State Bank of Pakistan Banking Services Corporation (SBP BSC), a subsidiary of State Bank of

Pakistan (SBP), the central bank of Pakistan. At SBP BSC I am working as Senior Officer,

Currency Management Unit at Sukkur office and I am responsible for handling currency related

affairs of banks/DFIs and supervising supply chain of currency notes in Sukkur region and also

arranging cash monitoring of commercial banks operating in the region, which impacts the

region's economy and overall economy as well. Before getting selected as permanent employee,

I have completed a three months training at National Institute of Banking and Finance (NIBAF)

under State Bank of Pakistan Banking Services Corporation's Young Professional Induction

Program. During this training I was taught the practical aspect of central banking, monetary

policy, currency management, international markets, foreign exchanges and other economic

related functions being performed by the central bank. Prior to joining State Bank of Pakistan, I

worked at Aaj TV, one of the leading TV channels of Pakistan as Programming and Product

Development Executive and I was responsible for developing, executing and measuring

marketing and media plans, assisting in content planning in accordance with the market needs,

delivering on channel initiatives campaign, planning and preparing product development kits.

During my 2 Years service at Aaj TV I worked on many projects related to economy such as

Election 2013 Campaign in which I was assigned to campaign on power of voting. My last

project at Aaj TV was conducting marketing campaign for Aghaz-e-Safar show directed by the

only Pakistani Oscar Winner (Twice) filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinnoy. The show was based

on socio-economic issues such as water shortage, gun control, medical negligence etc. that are

most prevalent inPakistan and solutions to these issues. The show was declared a hit.  I have

also worked on marketing of BBC Urdu's first ever TV program Sairbeen.

Upon my return, I would like to work as an economist, doing research as well as analyzing

economic issues and also interpreting and predicting market trends. Apart from that, I would like

to work as a policy analyst at State Bank of Pakistan, composing, collecting as well as compiling

information related to the economy and increasing awareness about public issues by

recommending policies to the competent authorities. I would also like to seek employment with

USAID, ADB, World Bank or any of the other international development aid organization

operating in Pakistan as part of their project planning and mobilization team.

Having said this, I would like to sum up my study research objective as pursuing professional

learning in economics. This is only possible if you allow me to study for this field which is rarely

touched in the society where I belong and has lot of potential to serve the society and country

significantly.
